Tune from the West Coast I believe. Cracker.
If anyone knows of a different third part do let me know and I’ll change it- it seems like there should be but I’ve never heard it played.

The White Crow, X:2

This setting if from the playing of the fabulous west coast musicians Archie McAllister and Donald Shaw. You can find it on the album ‘The Gathering Storms’ by ross Kennedy and Arhie Mcallister - the last track.

The White Crow, X:3

This is quite commonly played in Cape Breton and has been recorded by at least a dozen fiddlers there.
This setting (X:3) is taken from the playing of Howie MacDonald. Note the F# notes leading up to the Gs at the turnarounds.
